ABOUT TOPOLOBAMPO

“Possibly the most elegant and serious Mexican restaurant in the country.” — Florence Fabricant, The New York Times

“Rick Bayless is forever foraging in remote nooks of Mexico and in the kitchens of its most creative chefs to bring back incomparable new dishes.” Chicago Magazine

“Astonishing.” The Chicago Tribune

Rick and Deann Bayless opened Topolobampo in 1989, a few years after opening Frontera Grill. The two restaurants were designed to have the same front door, but that would be one of the few things they would share. If Frontera rocks and claps, Topolo slinks. She is the quiet, sleek, classy sister. She’s also the more daring one.

Topolo’s food has always been contemporary, and it becomes more so every year. Now almost 30 years old, our dinner menu is divided not into appetizers and entrees but rather into three distinct, chef-selected tasting menus – the five-course “classic” and “seasonal” options, or the showcase seven-course “Perfect 7” tasting menu.
